FISHERS, Ind., Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TelaCare, a national telemedicine technology and services company, announced today that it has added a life-saving medical ID system in addition to its telehealth and counseling services on TelaCare, one of the fastest growing telemedicine companies. TelaCare's new ViewMyID medical ID system is the easiest way to access, store, and manage patient's health information for easy access in an emergency. Patients profiles can be accessed anytime, anywhere via TelaCare's products such as bracelets, necklaces, cards, and TelaCare's mobile app. Users are able to control which information is public versus private. The public data is available to anyone who downloads the app and can be particularly helpful in a situation where, for instance, someone with Alzheimer's is lost and an emergency contact has been made public.
"Patients control and update their medical profiles, which can include basics like name, age, weight, blood type and health insurance, down to details on life-threating or life-altering conditions, medications, legal documents like organ donor cards and documents like X-rays, ECGs and CT scans," said Larry Jones, CEO, TelaCare.
"We all lead busy lives and a lot can change in a mere matter of seconds. We know first-hand that emergencies can occur anytime, anywhere without warning. Just having a bracelet that has a single condition and no other information isn't enough these days when time-is-of-the-essence," added Jones.
With TelaCare's ViewMyID, first responders can access your profile in 5 seconds or less, telling them who you are, who to contact, and how to save your life. They will have access to your complete medical information from condition(s) to emergency contacts. TelaCare's medical ID system isn't only a good idea - it's necessary with today's technology. When your life is on the line, every second counts and TelaCare is with you anytime, anywhere.
